with a country where we have previously under either the bush administration or the obama administration transferred the detainees there and that they have been released and have gotten back in the fight against us or our allies. why would we want to transfer to this type of country again, because obviously these countries cannot guarantee the security of these detainees, and it puts us and our allies at risk. finally, our amendment would prohibit the transfer of guantanamo detainees to countries who have failed to honor their previous commitments to the united states of america, to monitor, detain or control the travel of former guantanamo detainees. again, if we have had a prior agreement with a country and we have transferred a detainee or a detainee's there and they have failed to honor those agreements, why would we want to transfer detainees there now? now, the most recent instance of this was the five taliban dream team that were transferred to qatar because the country of georgia tar actually had a prior instance where they failed to honor their commitments to us with regard to h
